BUMPS BUMPS BUMPS! Part Two…..
After the resounding success of the Moguls session that we ran in March, we are very pleased to be able to announce the next session, on 25th May.
Once again we are excited that Ian and Ania (England Moguls Coaches) will be running this session for Sharks Club members.
The plan is that Ian and Ania will come to the Sharks session between 9 and 11 in the morning. Anyone interested will then have a short break for refreshments / lunch, then, we will run an additional 2 hours moguls session. You will have an opportunity to practice skiing moguls and, with their support, develop skills that increase your confidence and enjoyment in the bumps.
The cost of the sessions will be £45. Please note that this includes the morning Sharks session. This therefore means that for those who normally pay £29 for the sharks session, you will be getting an additional two hours coaching for just £16. Not only that, but the price includes a full day pass for the day at Snozone. This therefore means that should you wish to stay on the snow afterwards, then you can, at no extra cost. Bargain!
Anyone interested in the session, will need to pay the British Moguls Academy directly by the 17th March. Details are below;
Account name: the British Moguls Academy
Account number: 11565541
Sort code: 09-01-29
Once you’ve made a booking, just email email@example.com saying who will be attending the session, how comfortable they are skiing moguls and what they want out of the session.
Also, if you have any questions, just send an email to the same address.
We will be holding our Annual General Meeting on 18th May 2019.
All members are invited to come along and participate in the meeting.
The Meeting will start at 11:30 after the Skiing Session at Xscape, Castleford.
This will be a great opportunity to hear updates from our team regarding the last years activity at Sharks, and receive the annual accounts.
Agenda for the meeting, and Minutes from last year can be found here…
As usual we will also be appointing Committee Members for the coming year. We are always keen to have new committee members, and this year we will have a number of vacant posts. In particular, I will be stepping down as Club Secretary. If anyone is interested in taking up this, or any other position on the Committee, then please get in touch with me, before the meeting on the 18th.
Nominations can be sent to me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
A list of Committee positions and current incumbents can be found here…
In addition we are also looking for a new female Club Captain.
Grace Slater will be stepping down from this role at the AGM, and we would like someone to work alongside current male Captain, Tom Hill, to represent the views of our junior members.
If you are interested in becoming Club Captain, then please email me your name, and a short description of yourself, and why you would like to do it to email@example.com
If you would like to, then please add a photograph of yourself.
Deadline for nominations is Midnight Thursday 9th May.
This is on order for us to be able to organise a vote among the junior members in time for the AGM.
Any questions or queries, then just drop me a line.
Otherwise, I look forward to seeing you all there.
Please see the website for details of the Sharks 2020 Holiday to Champoluc in Italy.
Please see details below of summer race camp being held at Pendle
It’s that time of year again to share information about yet another Pendle Summer Race Camp. Believe it or not, it is now 10 years since Jo and I began running our summer camps at, firstly Rossendale and, more latterly, Pendle (!!)
The camp will be following the usual format and run in the same way as always, following our tried and tested formula, but full details can be found below and attached.
Please feel free to get in touch if you’d like to discuss further,
13-17th August 2018
Pendle Ski Club
£220 for the week
£55 per day
Please feel free to circulate this email/flyer around any friends/colleagues/club members that you think it might be of interest to.
Hopefully this will be of interest again to those who have attended past camps, and indeed to any new racers (or new to the Pendle Summer Camp!) out there who would like to get involved in a 5-day summer ski race camp that brings a mixture of training and fun skiing activities in the middle of August. Any young skier – whether a seasoned racer to perhaps a first-time racer or Saturday club skier – is more than welcome. We always have a range of abilities and a range of ages amongst attendees. But if you have any questions about the suitability of the camp for your child, please do just get in touch.
If you are interested in booking on, please send an email to Benn Hall (firstname.lastname@example.org) to confirm your place. We would also be grateful if you could complete and return the attached booking form and medical form. These can be returned either by post or email (they can be completed electronically if easier). Payment can be made by BACs or cheque/cash.
And, of course, if you have any questions about the camp, please do not hesitate to get in contact either by email or phone (details below).
As always, we look forward to seeing both familiar and new faces alike, and look forward to seeing as many of you as possible in August.
A couple of upcoming Race Events that you may be interested in are as follows:
STOKE – FUN SLALOM EVENT
The next date for Festival Park Ski Clubs Summer Race League is Saturday 16th June. Either pre-register or enter on the day but do remember to e-mail your intent to email@example.com – all the registration details are shown within the Race Poster. Feel free to keep me in the loop so I have an idea of who is attending.
The format will be two individual timed runs through a slalom course to determine how you stand within your age group on the day. You’d then be placed into groups of four according to your quickest timed run for the second session of the day, dual slalom head to head races – very exciting and great fun!
The event is open to all ages and abilities, they’re fun, they’re not pressured and you’d be amongst friends.
ROSSENDALE – FUN SLALOM EVENT
Rossendale have just released their Summer Race League dates – Sundays 15th July, 19th August and 23rdSeptember.
The race format is the same as Stokes but you will need to register through me rather than directly with the club. So if you’d like to register for Rossendale or if you’re new to dry slope slalom racing and you need more information please e-mail me: firstname.lastname@example.org or text/message me on: 07774 845 444 (under 18’s please copy in a parent/guardian).
